Is Philly drunk? Signing this guy who is unproven and a midget to a 3 yr one-way deal at avg $900,000K is absolutely absurd and a terrible move by the GM. This joke of over-paying for college free agents is hilarious!! Team scouting departments should be fired for this. The anomaly that Martin St. Louis, Ed Belfour, Adam Oates and more recent Chris Kunitz have been are extreme examples and if a player isn't drafted and noticed early in their career in this age of technology, then hes not worth the crazy deal. Tyler Bozak and Matt Gilroy were seen as immediate saviors and have been busts SO FAR!! All teams are doing is making their AHL team a lot stronger (hopefully) and producing 4th line NHL'ers at best. With phillys strong prospect group and signing this midget to a 3 year one-way deal will create more headaches than anything else. Absolutely flabbergasted!!! Holmgren is a moron....get a goalie already!! Bridesmade again is all I can say!
Read sits 2nd on the team in scoring. I thought they had a goalie...or two.

Didn't he just get 4 points? Didn't Bob McKenzie say he was winning the Calder?
Btw Bozak hasn't really been a bust.. he was rushed into a number one center spot which didn't work well for his development. New season and he is expected to be the number 3 center, although Connolly got hurt so hes on the same line as last year, he looks much much better.
I have to admit he has been better than advertised. Lavi has him playing in all situations and he does not look out of place, No Calder predictions from this fan. But man oh man he is looking good early on. He is not a slight kid either for his size and can he fly. Nice pick up by Paul Holmgren.
